  7. Your biryani is ready to be layered now
  8. Take a deep pot/pan and add one thin layer of Basmati Rice. Next, add the gravy, Sprinkle some chopped mint leaves and add a little saffron milk over it. Repeat this process for at least three layers.
  9. After you are done with the last layer, add fried onions / cabbage for non-ginger-garlic and mint leaves, and cover the pot. Cook on a slow flame for 10-15 minutes.
